When you think of "Mrs. C" from Happy Days, an image of actress Marion Ross springs to mind, dressed in her usual neatly pressed dress and, of course, an apron.

Like many of the moms from TV classic sitcoms, Marion Cunningham never seemed to be too far from the kitchen. Even career-minded TV mom Abby Bradford (played by actress Betty Buckley) tried to impress her big brood with home cooking on Eight Is Enough. The same held true for Barbara Billingsley from Leave It to Beaver, Beverly Garland from My Three Sons, Shirley Jones from Partridge Family and June Lockhart on Lassie and Lost in Space.

Here is one of the recipes (courtesy of the American Egg Board) that the TV moms prepared on Good Morning America.

  • 4 ounces fine egg noodles, cooked and drained (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup green peppers, chopped
  • 3 tbsp. onions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1 cup cooked lean ham, chopped (4 ounces)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup milk (nonfat or low-fat 1 percent)
  • 2 tsp. prepared mustard
  • Cooking Directions

    To form crust, press noodles over bottom and up sides of lightly greased deep 9-inch quiche dish or pie plate.

    In a small covered saucepan over medium heat, cook peppers and onions in water until peppers are crisp-tender. Stir in ham. Sprinkle evenly over noodle crust. Beat together eggs, milk and mustard until thoroughly blended. Carefully pour over vegetables and ham.

    Bake in preheated 375 degrees F oven until puffed in center and knife inserted near center comes out clean, about 30 to 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
